SS.capeepicXCJersey_evo7 Lady Jersey
With Assos' arrival in the off-road scene, luxury cycling kit now officially transcends the boundary between road and trail. The SS.capeepicXCJersey_evo7 Lady Jersey represents the entry level on the women's side of things. It may not exhibit Assos' penchant for grandiose excess like the line-topping SS.rally jersey, but the SS.capeedpicXCJersey does bring the brand's meticulous attention to fit and finishing details to a price that's more reasonable on a pennies-per-mile basis.
The Lady version is similar to the men's but dialed with a women-specific cut, and it represents something of a collaboration between Assos and the race from which the jersey takes its name. It's built to handle the duress of that race, but it lacks the armadillo-esque back armor and convoluted construction of the SS.rally. Instead, the SS.capeepic is composed almost entirely of Assos' Type.197 material, which is the classic example we all think of when we think of cycling jerseys: lightweight, breathable, and slightly textured to encourage moisture wicking. While it's technically an off-road jersey, the SS.capeepic is just as at home serving as a club-fit road jersey.
At the side panels, Assos interrupts the Type.197 parade with a strip of what may be the finest mesh we've ever seen on a cycling jersey. Where the mesh on the back panel of the SS.rally feels more like breathable armor, the SS.capeepic's mesh is the closest thing to naked that we'd take on a trail ride. Though it doesn't extend all the way up to the armhole, it's worth noting that this stuff is transparent, so we recommend a base layer, an extended sports bra, or a coat of sunscreen underneath.
The jersey is finished with the kind of Assos details that you'd expect, including the signature zip pull and a compressive, supportive rear hem with silicone print to maintain coverage while you're hanging off the saddle. The three rear pockets are hemmed with a similar material, which provides support so the back of the jersey doesn't become a shapeless, droopy mess under the weight of a banana, granola bar, multi-tool, CO2, and all the rest of the necessities the pockets provide room for. Those pockets' catch-all space is supplemented with an additional zip pocket for items that you can't afford to orphan on the trail.
